The State was in possession of a confession for the murder of a man whose body was found in the boot of a car at Montecasino, the Randburg Magistrate’s Court heard on Wednesday.

“We have no objection to releasing the confession made by Maruschka Robinson,” prosecutor Yusuf Baba said.

Robinson, a former stripper, appeared with her boyfriend Jean-Pierre Malan for the murder of Dustan Blom.

Blom’s decomposing body was found in the boot of his own car in the parking garage at the entertainment venue in September.

He was found after security guards noticed a bad smell coming from the car.

Robinson was arrested on September 24, and Malan on September 26.
